- Ceramic Blade
Ceramics are of the best materials for making strong and precise blades that stay sharp. Substances known as ceramics have strong bonding properties at the molecular level but don't have the more troublesome characteristics of some other hard materials ( like the magnetism or reactivity of pure metals ). This product is made of zirconium oxide, also known as zirconia. It is not the same thing as cubic zirconia but is closely related. Zirconium oxide is a white, crystalline form of ceramic that is known for its immense hardness.
- No Ordinary Grip
The Yoshi Blade includes a handle crafted using the Santoku design. It originates from Japan and is based on the concept of three virtues by freely allowing three distinct uses of the blade in food preparation: slicing, dicing and mincing. This is partially accomplished by the distinct placement of the handle in alignment with the top of the blade. Providing a steady counterbalance to the cutting material is also an important part of the handle design.
Strength is one of the most attractive properties of ceramics and this quality translates to a blade that can withstand the rigors of continuous usage. This knife is resistant to pitting and other deformities while also remaining chemically inactive due to the properties of zirconium oxide, giving it resistance to rust.
- Maybe Too Strong
This is unlikely to become an issue because of the durability of the blade, but one of the downfalls of ceramic knives is that they are very difficult to resharpen if damaged. It is a necessary though minimal risk when using ultra-hard materials for cutting purposes.
The Yoshi Blade will save customers money by reducing the number of knives they need to own in order to accomplish all the food preparation methods they want to use. Its Santoku design makes the knife perfect for fine precision tasks and large chopping needs alike, plus just about everything in between. Using durable materials in the construction also ensures it will last longer than the average steel blade, possibly by as much as ten times, greatly reducing potential sharpening and / or replacement expenses.
The marketing video for this product starts by identifying some of the less attractive parts of dealing with traditional steel bladed knives in food preparation. It then introduces the Yoshi Blade as a superior alternative to more common cutting tools. Demonstrations of the knife in use are shown in combination with footage of a professional chef endorsing the product by saying it would stay as sharp as new after 500 uses. They identify the materials used in its construction and go over a few of the benefits associated with them. There is an interesting visual of the blade being turned into a small bit of dust when rubbed against a sharpening tool, but not becoming dull or damaged in any visible way. Price comparisons to other ceramic knives are covered before a 30 day money back guarantee is given. Lastly, the advertisers add a bonus offer of receiving a ceramic peeler for just an additional shipping fee. To conclude, they present the option to double it all for a total of two knives and two peelers for the price of one of each.
